I've heard it said that if you want to get someone's attention, whisper. It works - try it sometime with your child. If you whisper, they will try their best to hear.
God does the same thing with us. His voice is still and small.
It seems like it would be so much easier if He just used an audible voice with booming loud tones. We'd know right away what He wants.
Instead, He wants us to seek Him, to really pay attention and see if we can hear Him. He is honored by our sacrifice of taking the time to listen.
Really, that's all anyone wants of a person who says they love them - the gift of time spent listening.
5 Minute Friday is now hosted by Kate at the blog "heading home." This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Also, the most important rule is that you visit the blog of the person who linked up before you and leave some encouragement. That’s the most fun of all, and the heart of this community.
